If you read his articles properly, Jimmy stopped using the induction stove
, did not boil water
, stopped using the winches on electric
, cooked and warmed food
on a solar stove
He never sailed under power, only used the motor
to maneuver when not sailing.
Obviously, his autopilot
, plotter, radios etc kept using power.
Hi did say that being 'spartan', he thought he could cross the Atlantic, but that his regenerating system is definitely not sufficient for a round the world
Instead of the promised 800W at 8kn, he was only getting around 350W.
I guess the main problem is the wave motion at sea, but we will see what the final 'autopsy' will reveal.
I have an induction stove and a microwave too .... sold
the gas cooker
My 1200W of solar are no-way near able to let me cook at anchor
, imagine when sailing
I will definitely have to make some changes when I will be able to get to my boat again.
Please refrain from commenting on my situation, I do not want to hijack this tread.
